Summary

This browser extension makes it easy to download all kinds of media from web pages. It supports various formats like mp3, mp4, webm, flv, ogg, avi, mkv, m3u8...... and even encrypted videos. Typically, any video or audio file playable on the corresponding web page can be downloaded. Many media resources that cannot be captured by other extensions can be captured by this extension.

Designed for a seamless user experience, the extension is straightforward to use. When a video is detected on a webpage, a small floating box appears in the top right corner. Clicking on it reveals a download list with all available resolutions for that video. Simply click to download to your local device.

Additionally, the extension offers a collector mode, allowing batch previewing or downloading of over 1000 videos across web pages.

It's also convenient for gathering audio materials. You can easily preview and filter audio files, much like using a music player.

Alongside the extension, a powerful desktop application is provided. It takes over the browser's built-in download manager, significantly boosting download speeds. It supports nearly all mainstream protocols like HTTP, FTP, SSH, Magnet, and Torrent, and even automatically parses other third-party protocols like CURL, wget, aria2, axel, etc., from the command line.

(Note: This browser extension cannot operate independently; it requires installation of the FileCentipede desktop application.)
